He studied in the yeshiva in Brisk for a number of years and moved to Vilna in the 1920’s where he lived until 1933 when he emigrated to Eretz Yisroel.
He lived in Bnei Brak near his brother-in-law the Steipler and although he did not hold an official rabbinic position, he was regarded as one of the greatest halachic poskim (arbiters) of his generation.
Although he did not publish many responsa, his advice and guidance were sought by thousands of Jews from around the world.
He is known by the name Chazon Ish, after his major work which he published in 1911.
